Voicemail charges with my new bill.....

    In my new bill it said that voicemail checking would be deducted from my
    general airtime minutes and if it is night and weekends then it would come
    from there. But it will not come from mobile to mobile. It said this was
    starting as of my April billing so that way they can get their billing up to
    a national standard. ALso if i call frmo a landline it would not affect any
    minutes.

    It seems odd that if you call your mobile number to check your voicemail it
    isn't deducted from your m2m allowance. You can call any vzw number except
    your own and use m2m minutes?

    Seems to me that if you're under contract, they can't change the terms of
    service. I'd tell them if they do that then rather then when your contract
    is up, I'd consider that a breach of contract and will act accordingly.

    Also seems to me that if you get "free" in-network calls, when you're
    calling yourself, you're in-network despite what they say.

    well that is exactly what it said in my bill. i could scan it and put it up
    on a site if anyone wants to see it. So how would i go about getting out of
    contract? I am just curious. Not that i want to. But if i got out of
    contract, i could still keep service and perhaps sign a new contract to get
    an upgrade? wondering if you could do that. i am happy with my service
    anyhow.

    I'd tell them they need to cancel the contract and pay you a stiff
    cancellation fee-- just like they charge if you cancel. Also, threaten to
    file a complaint with the FCC and take them to Small Claims Court. Actually,
    I'd be inclined to file the FCC complaint anyway. Their business behavior is
    egregious.

    If you do want to stay with them, tell them you'll stay-- but only if they
    compensate you for their breach by reducing your monthly charge and/or
    adding features, minutes, a new phone, etc. And one of their best looking
    Verizon bunnies has to hand deliver your bill each month.
